“Wait With Faith” By M.S Lowndes

Lord, you have faithfully shown me
So many times before
And this time is no exception, Lord,
And simply can’t be ignored

 

That you know all that concerns my life,
Everything your eyes do see
You always come through at just the right time
To meet my every need

 

For nothing escapes your watchful eye,
No problem that we may cross
But so often, Lord, it seems as though
There’s a delay in your response

 

I know it’s a testing of our faith
To wait so patiently
You stretch us so our faith may grow,
Though we want it instantly

 

But it’s for our good that you respond
In your time, not in ours,
For if you didn’t – we’d stay as infants,
Getting everything right now

 

For us to grow more Christ-like,
We need to learn to wait,
For often that’s the answer to prayer
And builds us up in faith

 

So I thank you for the answer to come
As I hand it over in prayer
Thank you that you’re still working on me
And my breakthrough’s drawing near.
